School uniform at BIC Sa Porrassa is required, as per the guidelines below. School uniform encourages a sense of unity and common purpose and provides a sense of belonging.

All items brought into school (including clothing, lunch boxes and water bottles) should be clearly marked with the student’s name.

We are excited to announce that we are launching our brand new school uniform.
